Trick or Treat

I've been lucky enough to be asked to be Guest Designer on this month's Memory Keeping with Project Life by Stampin' Up! So with Halloween just around the corner, I decided to look back on last year's photos and create a page using the new Seasonal Snapshot kit. 

I used professional photos taken from a Halloween disco we went to with fellow Project Lifer, Kate Denyer, and her son.  The photos were fab, but I didn't know where in the house to put them.  I thought what better way to display them than in my Project Life album using the Halloween theme cards from the kit, which also includes Back to School, Autumnal & Winter themed cards.
As the photos were larger than the pockets in the pages I had to trim them using the guillotine.  I was a bit nervous about doing this, as I had no copies of these photos.  However, I was really pleased with them, I love the overall effect.

I used Back to Basics letter stamps to stamp "Halloween Disco" and "Mini Movers" and the small round number stamps from Moments Like These stamp set, all in Basic Black.

I love how the rustic and black cards compliment the photos, but I felt the pages needed a splash of colour. 

I think the bright Tangelo Twist orange looks fab alongside my sons 'strawberry blonde' locks, and also the glittery spider web on my witches hat. 

I had a lot of fun finishing these pages with the wood shape and stickers from the accessory pack, making full use of  the bats,  letters and numbers. I love the vintage label lettering and couldn't resist creating an Instagram style tagline #toocutetospook.  These, and the peel off black and white letters and numbers  are great for creating titles if you have no stamps, or have little time to create pages.

Big thank you to Julie Kettlewell,the Yoda of Stampin' Up!, for kindly asking me to feature this month. You can check out more examples of the Seasonal Snapshot kit in action at the following blogspots:
